    Joe Torre is the most successful and most respected baseball manager of the modern era, steering the Yankees to six American League pennants and four World Series championships. When he left the team in 2007, it was front-page news around the country. Famously diplomatic during his tenure with the Yankees, Torre finally speaks out about what it was like building and managing the dynasty during those 12 glorious and tumultuous years.

    Lynn says: "Great listen"
    "All about Joe."
    Overall

    Joe continually based Yankees,the failures were the Yankees never his.Yankee fans should be glad he is gone.

    A Cure to Die For is a medical thriller about a wonder drug, a miracle cure and a conspiracy to destroy it. A genetically engineered cure for the common cold - a simple, inexpensively grown plant - turns out to be a cure for cancer and threatens to make most other drugs obsolete. The discovery triggers a crisis of medical, corporate and political greed that sweeps the country as the government and the media conspire with Big Pharma to keep the miracle drug off the market.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    A liberal lunatic.


    What could Stephen G. Mitchell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Write a believable story not make a political statement. His characters broke countless laws which is OK as long as it is for a cause.
    I hated the woman lead character Cid.


    Did Chuck Driscoll do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    A good job of narration. The actors did a reasonable job.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None whatsoever.


    Any additional comments?

    Avoid anything written by this author.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This was not a legal thriller. The 4th book in the series is the worst. What once was a good series only got worse with each book. This book showed the author's liberal view. The narrator made the main character Sasha McCandless sound 9 years old and her boyfriend 90. It as so painful to listen to her try to sound male. Don't waste a credit of your time on this one.


    Has Indispensable Party turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She can't do male voices.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No

    An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

    Suzn F says: "I confess, I loved it!"
    "Just Awful!"
    Overall

    Listening to this liberal fantasy was indeed an execution,for the listener.I gave it one star ony because I had to.My last Grisham book.

    They had no business being there. They were up against million-dollar horses owned by patricians, oilmen, Arab sheiks, and Hollywood producers. They were 10 regular guys, and all they wanted was to win a race. Instead, they won the hearts of America.

    Great small town success story.

Moving to Charleston, South Carolina, she opens a unique private forensic pathology practice, one in which she and her colleagues, including Pete Marino and her niece, Lucy, offer expert crime-scene investigation and autopsy services to communities lacking local access to competent death investigation and modern technology.

    Ernie Davis was an All-American on the gridiron and a man of integrity off the field. A multi-sport high school star in Elmira, New York, Davis went on to Syracuse University, where as a sophomore he led his team to an undefeated season and a national championship in 1959, and earned his nickname: the Elmira Express. Two seasons later, Davis broke the legendary Jim Brown's rushing records and became the first black athlete to be awarded the Heisman Trophy.

    Robert says: "Why did it take so long?"

    Why did it take so long for the Ernie Davis story to be told?He was a great player and a greater person. The book tells you the real story of Ernie Davis the movie is a distortion.Awful narration.
